Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In her latest job, Montana PI Phoebe Siegel, introduced in By Evil Means , hopes to clear a Crow Indian suspected of murdering a grave robber. The brisk narrative begins when a vanload of people spills into the PI's yard. Sent by Kyle Old Wolf, Phoebe's friend and a member of the local police, they're all related to the murder suspect, Matthew Wolf. He is accused of killing Monday Brown, whose body is missing, as is most of the latest batch of artifacts that he had sold to Jurgen Muller, a hulking German who is haunting Billings and snarling at the locals. The Wolfs are staying quiet about the two artifacts they found in Matthew's car. Phoebe is barely on the case when James Eagle, a friend of Matthew and his brother Steven, is murdered. Kyle says the answers Phoebe wants are on the nearby reservation, but even with the help of a psychologist familiar with the Indians, the investigation grows stranger and more dangerous. Prowell adds dimension to her twisting plot and varied cast with Phoebe's unsentimental interest in a culture she finds baffling in both its traditional and modern aspects.

From Library Journal

Headstrong private detective Phoebe Siegel ( By Evil Means, LJ 1/93) remains ignorant of Native American religious beliefs even though she lives near Billings, Montana, and has several Indian friends. Despite this deficiency, the family of an Indian youth accused of possible murder and graverobbing enlists her help in clearing him. Controversy over lost Indian heritage, smuggling of valuable artifacts, and murder in Phoebe's own backyard add interesting--if somewhat routine--elements to this series title. For larger collections.

Format: Paperback
Phoebe Siegel is a wise-cracking, gutsy P. I. with a past. She's also one of the most well-crafted and fascinating heroines I've come across in a long time.
In The Killing of Monday Brown, Siegel is hired by a local native American family to locate Matthew Wolf, a family member who is on the run and accused of killing Monday Brown. Monday is a white man living among the Crow community, and has been robbing the graves of Indians, stealing valuable and sacred artifacts for sale in Europe. But Monday is nowhere to be found, and Matthew Wolf is hard to find.
Phoebe's search for the truth leads takes her on a journey deep into the Crow culture and straight into the path of danger. Prowell's vivid exploration of Crow culture makes an already wonderful novel even more fascinating. And it doesn't hurt one bit that, along the way, Phoebe's relationship with sexy police officer Kyle Old Wolf also heats up considerably.
Prowell's ability to write fast-paced, entertaining dialogue is comparable in style and quality to such talented writers as Sandra Scoppettone and Dana Stabenow. The Montana setting is rich in history, culture, and beauty - a truly superb backdrop for the series. And while Montana seems to be a current favorite of writers, Prowell truly brings this area to life in The Killing of Monday Brown, a reflection of her artistic talent as well as her heritage as a fourth-generation Montanan. It's abundantly clear that Prowell has given much thought, heart, and soul to her series' heroine as well as the plot that sustains The Killing of Monday Brown. Phoebe is a deliciously feisty breath of fresh air, and this complicated plot moves quickly and smoothly from its beginning to its highly suspenseful conclusion.

Murder, mystery, suspense, lovable characters with lazer-fast wit and charm. Take the visual detail of Anne Perry, add the fun from Janet Evanovich, and the artfulness of Agatha Christie and you've got THE KILLING OF MONDAY BROWN. WARNING, keep your book out of range from those who might swipe your copy. It's great. And every now and again a chuckle leaks out from the wonderful snappy exchanges between certain characters.
PHOEBIE SIEGAL, PI, is out to find out who murdered MONDAY BROWN, a want-to-be Native American. She takes her investigation in and around the tense lives on and off the reservation with first-person perception, attitude, and humor.
Love this story. Just got BY EVIL MEANS and WHEN WALLFLOWERS DIE. Anyone know when Sandra West Prowell's LAP OF GOD will be released? Please e-mail me if you do. It says in back of book that it will be the first thriller.

Whether or not you've read the first entry in the Phoebe Siegel series (By Evil Means) you'll find The Killing of Monday Brown a well-written, unique, and very entertaining novel. And if you're a fan of writers such as Dana Stabenow, Sandra Scoppettone, Abigail Padgett, or Janet Evanovich, do yourself a favor and give Phoebe Siegel a try. I'll bet you one beautiful Montana sunset that you won't be disappointed.

A favorite series July 25 2013
By Maria Schneider - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is one of the very few series I have read twice. It's that good. I read a while back that the author had to stop writing to take care of family and make a living...dang. I wish she'd write again and get these books on kindle. Superb story telling, great plots and wonderful characters.
